Lytro is a new icon for the next-era of photography. Visually defined by its unique striking form, the innovative ‘extruded lens’ houses Lytro’s radical light field sensor technology – technology that allows you to focus after the photo is taken. The result of years of research & theory shrunk down into a pocket-sized object that reframes what photography is.
“This is an American innovation story and it’s an example where somebody has up-ended a whole thing we’ve all taken for granted by bringing out a whole new way of looking at it.”
Walt Mossberg - The Wall Street Journal
Unique Internal Architecture
Lytro’s physical architecture splits electronics into 4 logic boards, stacked inline with sensor, engine, battery, lens and screen. This hyper-dense stack is threaded by 4 long screws and enclosed in a 112 mm long sleeve made of and aluminium extrusion and co-molded rubber.
Each component was weighted and positioned precisely to place the center of gravity directly under the shutter button - a seemingly small detail that rests Lytro effortlessly and securely in your hand
